Self-Portrait with Straw Hat - Vincent van Gogh

Born: 30 March 1853; Zundert, Netherlands

Died: 29 July 1890; Auvers-sur-Oise, France

Active Years: 1880 - 1890

Field: painting

Nationality: Dutch

Art Movement: Post-Impressionism

Van Gogh generally considered the greatest after Rembrandt, and one of the greatest of the Post-Impressionists. The striking colour, emphatic brushwork, and contoured forms of his work powerfully influenced the current of Expressionism in modern art. Van Gogh’s art became astoundingly popular after his death, especially in the late 20th century, when his work sold for record-breaking sums at auctions around the world and was featured in blockbuster touring exhibitions.
